2020-03-23 23:42:57   Given this page has received no updates, can we remove it from the front page? It seems very out of place and looks like front-page advertising for this optometrist, especially considering we are being asked to leave the entry for the optometrist on the front page for historical purposes even if we edit it to include a new entry. —ToddGlenn

Davis Farmers Market

The Davis Farmers Market is a must-see for any visitor and a weekly tradition for many residents.


The market is at Central Park, at Fourth and C Streets downtown, rain or shine, and is a Certified Farmer's Market... everything sold in the market is either grown or made by the seller, including certified organic produce, fresh baked goods, flowers, and many other quality products. Sample delicious fruit while mingling with vendors and neighbors. The Yolo County Health Department's "no dogs" policy is strictly enforced in the pavilion area.




Davis Wiki

The Aggie ran a news story about the Davis Wiki on February 25th.  However, since students are free to publish anything on these pages, it is essential to remember that student newspapers are not consistently reliable, up-to-date sources of hard facts and cannot be taken entirely at face value.
